Ctech 1

Class Website:  http://blog.activateart.com
CTAC 1 is an introduction to computer technology & art.  We’ll meet twice a week with the first class being a single period lecture / discussion. The 2nd class will be a double period lab where we’ll focus on learning the programs & assignments.

We will begin by getting familiar with the computer systems. Photoshop will be our main subject for most of the 1st trimester.  If you can learn Photoshop, you can learn any program out there!  This class will consist of three projects that will take you through many of the tools that Photoshop has to offer.  This includes learning how to shoot and import digital photos, scanning, using layers, etc.

For the 2nd trimester you will learn how to create your own websites / blogs.  Using what you learned in Photoshop, you will create your own graphics, learn how to imbed videos, audio & photos and will focus on creating an online portfolio & journal to showcase your work, thoughts & ideas.

For the 3rd trimester you’ll have a choice between video shooting & editing, 3D modeling with Google Sketch-up, or creating your own video games with the “Scratch” gaming environment.  Most of the 3rd trimester will be focused on working on an independent project that explores your technology choices.
